Due to a delay in establishing the latest viewing figures, the dates have been moved, and the advertising year will now start on 1st March. The post above has been edited to reflect this, and to include the latest viewing figures.

Note that we have introduced a new cheap rate banner for the quieter parts of the forum, providing an excellent opportunity for those wishing to target a specialist audience.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

The new banners are now in position. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors, whose contributions make it possible for FR to pay for hosting and essential maintenance costs.

If anyone would like to take one of the spare banner slots at any time later in the year (costs would be based on time remaining), please get in touch.
